Nature & Wildlife Photographer

About Barbaralynne


Conservation and photography are my passions, my camera another appendage (according to my family).  My interest lies in nature and wildlife. 

I am lucky to back onto protected marshland.  Some of my photographs have been taken in my own backyard.  I also travel around Ontario.  Some of my favourite places to photograph are Point Pelee, Algonquin Provincial Park, Calden Alvar - to name but a few.  I also love Florida and the variety of birds/wildlife. I'm also very impressed with their efforts to provide habitat to endangered and species at risk.  Although I don't post captive animals in the zoo, I do support our local wildlife centres - they rescue animals that have been hurt or purchased by people who think they are able to keep a wild animal for a pet, from fur farms, etc.

This land is on loan to us, let's all help keep it healthy for your children and their children.  My hope is to help foster awareness, through my photographs of the importance of protecting all of the wildlife so future generations will learn to respect our land and be able to see birds and animals in their natural habitat and not only in a zoo or on a photograph.

I have been honored to have my work published in Canadian Geographic, Nature's Best Photography Magazine two years running, First (for women), two covers for Scholastic News, State of the Birds Report 2013 to the U.S. government, been featured on EarthShots.org as well as several other magazine websites and publications around the world.  Many of my images can be purchased through Getty Images.

Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time - the motto by which I live my life - author unknown.

Please contact me if you have any questions, I would love to hear from you. I have thousands of pictures - this is a small sampling of that work.
